Well highway=byway is a very UK specific thing so global renders and
routing won't pick it up. Its also not a legal thing in itself. The council
can provide the actual status. Where are these?

Also there is the suspected:designation=* tag if you're not sure.

Hi Rob

I believe byway shouldn't be deprecated. In my area most of them are signed
as just 'byway' on the ground. There is no indication of their legal status
(BOATs etc), & AFAIA, there is no non copyrighted source for these. I think
many that have been tagged with designation=* have been sourced from OS
